This nifty recipes was discovered in that mysterious old recipe box I purchase at a church sale. The paper seemes to be pulled from a book or perhaps a pamphlet. Maybe an advertising cookbook… who knows?
2 cups pitted cherries, raspberries, gooseberries, blackberries, strawberries or blueberries
1/2 cup butter
1 + 1/2 cups sugar
Fill a “Jewel” pie plate ( maybe the advertiser? ) — okay any old pie pan with whatever kind of pie crust you like …with your berries of choice.
Beat together the butter and sugar.
Beat in the eggs.
Spread the butter, sugar and egg mixture over the berries. Bake in a 450 degrees oven for 10 minutes.
Reduce the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking for another 30 minutes. Serve hot.
Oh, and I think I would serve it with a dollop of ice cream, just be sure tosave a slice for me.
